The station is served by FLP trains on line S60 of the Ticino rapid transit network, which operate every 15 minutes between Lugano and Ponte Tresa, with trains every 30 minutes at weekends and evenings. The station is also served by an Autopostale bus service to Aranno and Cademario Casa di Cura.
The headquarters and main depot of the FLP adjoins the station. The station has a passing loop, although trains do not usually pass here in normal service. There is a single side platform which adjoins the station building, and a narrow centre platform allows passengers to board and alight from trains on the loop track.
The station was renovated and expanded between 1990 and 1992, and further work, including the enlargement of the centre platform, was undertaken in 2003.
